Tony Lees

With no formal training, Tony has developed impressions created by the industrial nature of the area of Lancashire in which he lived. More recently he has turned his attention to the Lake District and its contrasting countryside in addition to other rural areas. Undoubtedly, fell walking inspires Tony greatly and the varying effects of sun, shadows and weather on the landscape contribute beyond measure to his popular personal interpretations.

‘3D’ dimension to his painting is, he feels, aided by the kiln fired ceramics he creates and it will come as no surprise to learn that Tony’s hugely popular paintings are to be seen in homes worldwide.

Sue Howells

Sue is a self-trained artist. Working mainly in watercolours, she maintains her energy and colours by using an economy of brush strokes. The colours she uses take on a wide range of hues when she adds light and dark, giving a translucent quality coupled with brush texture and an ability to use contrasting colour to very good effect.

Sue’s work has become very collectable and she continues to exhibit nationally and internationally.

Kate Wyatt

Kate Wyatt has become renowned for her wildlife paintings which capture the real essence of some of Britain’s most popular mammals. She works primarily in watercolour, layering marks with acrylic ink and pen to bring a structured chaos to her distinctive and inspired wildlife portraits.

Her sketches, as well as her finished paintings, combine a skilful mix of precision mark-making with a sprightly looseness, drawing influence from the likes of Gerald Scarfe and Arthur Rackham.

Kate has exhibited widely in London, and has work displayed in prestigious galleries in Bristol and across the West Country. Her paintings are held in private collections in the UK as well as the United States, Canada and Australia. Kate has established herself as a gifted wildlife artist and continues to delight with her unique interpretations of nature.

Sam Toft

Sam Toft’s narrative paintings are quirky, fun and beautifully composed. Born in June 1964 Sam’s earliest ambition amongst others was to work in a post office; luckily for art lovers, after inspired tutelage at Liverpool Community College, Sam decided to “give it a go” with her pictures.

After the sell-out success of her limited editions released in 2011 and 2012, Sam has created another exclusive collection for Collier & Dobson. The twenty one limited edition prints feature Sam’s now infamous characters, “The Mustard’s”, Ernest Hemingway Mustard and his dear lady wife Violet along with their much loved eccentric friends and pets. Using mixed media, pencil, oil pastels, coloured inks and her own idiomatic techniques, Sam depicts a seaside world of faded ice-cream colours where the breeze is always blowing and life is utterly delicious.

Gary Walton

At an early age Gary discovered that he had a natural gift for painting.

Throughout his schooldays he excelled at the subject and his unique style began to develop. His fascinating, unusual designs are a combination of his graphic ability and his highly creative artistic side. He loves to paint landscapes which were originally inspired by Salvadour Dali. ‘He was the artist to give me the inspiration to create my own unique style.’ His pictures emanate a magical quality: an ethereal contrast of reality and dreamlike visions.

‘I am very passionate with everything I paint and I will always strive to achieve producing a unique range of paintings for all to love.’

Rob Olley

Using his unique style of drawing, painting and sculpture, Bob is able to capture the very heart and humour of his native North East. His love of the Geordie folk, their way of life and, above all, their sense of humour, has given him inspiration since he left the mining industry in 1968.

Robert has also had the honour of producing works for a number of high profile figures over the years, from Nelson Mandela to Bobby Charlton
